I haven't seen this exact problem but if Apache::Test is really the problem, force install that sucker. It always fails for me too. See the paragraph headed "Apache::Test and Apache::Cookie" in the latest INSTALL file, for details.

I'm not sue about most other people...but I have installed slash lately several times...and each time bundle slash craps out on appache test...the issue as far as I can tell is that Apache::Test needs to do its perl Makefile.PL and make commands from root and then run the make test command without root privileges...and finally run the make install (after the make test passes) from root once again...I know it sounds crazy but was the only way I can get the Apache::Test to install...Hope this helps in some way.

Fails, because you're running as root, or are su'd to root. I had this exact problem
when I converted my site at home to slash 2.2.6
[geekizoid.com] and pudge figured it out for me.
Just force it - it will work after that.
